Homeschooling is all about being flexible!
We can plan, we can organize, we can strategize, but if we can't be flexible than we are likely to be miserable.
Case in point:
Monday, January 4, 2010
Tuesday, January 5, 2010
(Really, it did throw off the entire morning, but I figured, how often does an opportunity like this come by. Unfortunately, the deer was hit by a car sometime last night and not by my "aching-to-kill-a-deer-before-hunting-season-ends-soon" husband. We figure it was one of the 11 deer we saw in our yard Sunday evening.)
Back to my point. I could have been upset that a good portion of the time I spent on Monday was already blown by 9:00 on Tuesday, or I could choose to be flexible. I decided long ago that it always works out better for everyone to choose the "flexible" option! One of the true joys of homeschooling is when we can take advantage of the educational opportunities that God drops in our laps and not be so worried about what we had planned.
Hope your new semester is off to a good start, too!
